To each his own, but I would never put a K&N filter in a modern vehicle with MFI. I'm surprised other more experienced car guys haven't mentioned that. It's really quite difficult to beat a good quality paper filter for proper air filtration.
Now if you would like to increase induction noise to go along with your new exhaust I might suggest drilling a couple of 1" to 11/4" holes in the air box.

I did that to my 2.8L A6 several years ago and have had no regrets. It doesn't do anything for performance but sure gives the car a nice growl when you get on to it.
